Door sign

Welcome to my second inspiration post for our Christmas gifting challenge at our Country View Challenge this month, chosen by Miriam

Admittedly, I made this one for myself but... changing the words and motifs and you can make one fitting for anyone! 

For the base choose from MDF, mountboard, light weight wood, and you can even use a shaped substrate like Hearts or Tags. Anything goes...

I decided to leave my wood bare because I like it and it brings a bit of nature inside. I punched holes and added page reinforcers (I have die for that).
The background paper is from the Bella collection by 13@Arts.
The "Atelier des arts" is a Decorative Chip from the Door set (Collection Atelier des Arts by Stamperia ) which I embossed with Wow! EP in Pomegranate.

The 3D rose I created with hot glue and a Prima mould (My Sweet). I used glue just because I wanted to try out the mould and I had my glue gun at hand. [proper moulding material, such as  paper clay, would be a better choice. The lighter the better as it makes it easier to affix the sign without damaging the door/wall surface]. 
I coloured the motif with metallic powders in pink, green and silver (don't ask), only time will tell if it will last on the glue.... If not there's always acrylic paint! The shine looks good though...

There you have it door signs as a personalised gift...

Hope this will inspire you to enter our challenge, only one week left to be in with a chance to win a lovely £20 voucher.

I am entering the AllsortsRiver of creativity, and Creative Artiste challenges.

  3. I've never manage to use Hot Glue with a mould, any tips? Love this plaque and who says a gift cannot be for yourself. Thank you for adding to the flow at River of Creativity. xx

  4. Ooooh, trop belle ta rose !!!!
    Je n'ai jamais essayé la colle chaude dans mes moules... D'ailleurs, en parlant de moules Prima, j'en ai 2 ou 3 et je ne les utilise quasi jamais. Tu me donnes envie! L'effet de tes poudres et ton panneau de porte est superbe en tout cas, félicitations !!!
    Toujours aussi inventive... Moi en ce moment, je rame un peu à trouver de nouvelles idées :)
